Winter sown garden peas germinating early

I've just checked and Meteor are advertised as having 'excellent winter hardiness'.  I wouldn't worry

They sound as if they're doing what I would expect.  Provided they were a hardy (round seeded) variety intended for autumn sowing they'll be fine in all but the worst of winters. 

If you want to you could use one of those polythene mini-tunnels for them, but if they're up and growing they may soon need twigs to support them and that'd get in the way of a tunnel.

Unless you're in a very inhospitable part of the UK I wouldn't worry about protecting them from the weather.

Having just read Verdun's last post, I don't think that " ... being judgemental, insincere and pharisee-like ... " is restricted to people of faith or those of none ... sadly. 

I have known Humanists who seemed to be competing to be the most inhumane people in existence

The bible says 'Judge not that ye be not judged' ... not a bad creed for everyone, Christian or not.

BL ((hugs)) Don't think its 'cos they're worse than everyone else - it's 'cos some wear the label, but don't do what it says on the tin - that makes it seem worse  

But many people are good and kind and go the extra mile.  Whether they do it because of their faith or because of their love for the rest of humanity, or both ... that's up to them ... it's much appreciated whatever the reason ... it's what makes the world bearable.

Birdyboots   there's a song by the band Travis which goes 'Why does it always rain on me?  Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?'

As it almost always starts raining when OH gets his bike out of the garage, it's his theme song.

Think 'our' hedgehogs are hibernating now Pat - probably snuggled up in the dry leaves under the rear neighbours' huge hedges.    Great photo - think that Joey needs to give his mum a break and use his own legs!

Think I'll stick to sausage rolls

Maybe if we want to talk religion/Christmas etc it should have it's own thread?  Don't want to wander too far from the reason KEF started this one
